The March of the flies continues… The Flies are coming…
Up for you tonight is the Contagion Bearer.
I’m really happy with this model. At first I wasn’t too sure about the pose and, believe me, he was a bastard to photograph but now I think it works perfectly. I like that he is holding his banner up high with pride and is even glaring up at it too.
I’m pleased with how the mutant (Gaping) mouth on his stomach turned out. I filled the cavity with blood first then worked around it. There are quite a few layers of colour for the skin tone but I think my two most favourite parts to this mini are his rusted sword and the tone I managed to achieve on the banner. Speaking of the banner my, three circle, Nurgle symbol isn’t overly impressive but I do like the specks/spray of blood across it.
I hope you like looking at him as much as i liked painting him.
He was quite a challenging conversion. As the more keen eyed among you might see I’ve used Ork arms. His right one, holding the Banner, comes from the IronJaws kit which tend to be a lot bulkier. A huge gap was left on his back after I glued the arms to the front torso of the Blightking and that’s why the shield has been, strategically, placed where it is. Sneaky sneaks aye?
Love to hear your thoughts gang.
